Youth Day 2019, a visit with tomorrow’s leaders

The electric cooperatives of Illinois are giving tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to learn from lawmakers via Youth Day 2019.

For 60 years, the electric and telephone cooperatives of Illinois have given tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to learn from today’s public officials. Each year, nearly 250 outstanding students get an up close and personal look at democracy in action when they meet their elected representatives during Illinois Electric and Telephone Cooperatives Youth Day.

Over the years, thousands of students have learned how government works and why it’s important for every citizen to get involved in it. State senators and representatives have the opportunity to inspire and encourage the leaders of tomorrow during this annual event, held in Springfield.
